On my Brazilian trip to Minas Gerais, I was offered to visit the colonial towns of Ouro Preto and Marianna. The beautiful old buildings remain as they were during the gold rush. Nothing has changed much. Once the gold ran out the towns were forgotten about and Belo Horizonte become the capital. More info
The only camera I used in Brazil was my black special edition Fujifilm X100 which proved to operate in nearly even situation. This time around, I decided to set the camera to ISO 3200 and use ƒ2.8-f/2. Here are the results of my night street photography in the Ouro Preto. I hope you enjoy them, please do let others know and share it on Facebook & Twitter too.

This is one thing I’ll miss until the summer here in Salzburg, that is eating outside.
It’s amazing how late at night how the street lighting can set the scene.
Easy to capture the moments even with such poor light.
Wonderful eateries are to be found in Ouro Preto especially this one and the pizzeria above it too.
